The Offspring – Pretty Fly for a White Guy

Saw a kid at the Waterpark last weekend with his pants down on his hips and the ball cap sideways trying to be all gangsta…reminded me of this song.  (NSFW – lots of in the camera booty shakin’)

Lyrics after the fold

Give it to me baby,
Uh hu uh hu
Give it to me baby ,
Uh hu uh hu
Give it to me baby
Ih hu uh hu
And the girls say I’m pretty fly for a white guy

Um, dois, três, quatro, cinco, cinco, seis

You know it’s kind of hard
Just to get along today
Our subject isn’t cool
But he fakes it anyway
He may not have a clue
And he may not have style
But everything he lacks
Well he makes up in denial

So don’t debate, a player straight
You know he really doesn’t get it anyway
He’s gonna play the field, and keep it real
For you no way, for you no way
So if you don’t rate, just overcompensate
At least you’ll know you can always go on ricki lake
The world needs wannabe’s ahhs
Hey, hey do that brand new thing

give it to me baby
uh hu uh hu
give it to me baby
uh hu uh hu
give it to me baby
uh hu uh hu
and all the girlies say Im pretty fly for a white guy

He needs some cool tunes
Not just any will suffice
But they didn’t have ice cube
So he bought vanilla ice
Now cruising in his pinto, he sees homies as he pass
But if he looks twice
They’re gonna kick his lily ass

So don’t debate, a player straight
You know he really doesn’t get it anyway
He’s gonna play the field, and keep it real
For you no way, for you no way
So if you don’t rate, just overcompensate
At least you’ll know you can always go on ricki lake
The world loves wannabe’s
Hey, hey do that brand new thing

Now he’s getting a tattoo
He’s gettin’ ink done
He asked for a ’13’, but they drew a ’31’
Friends say he’s trying too hard
And he’s not quite hip
But in his own mind
He’s the he’s the dopest trip

Give it to me baby
uh hu, uh hu
Give it to me baby
uh hu, uh hu
Give it to me baby
uh hu, uh hu,
uno, dos, tres, cuatro, cinco, cinco, seis

So don’t debate, a player straight
You know he really doesn’t get it anyway
He’s gonna play the field, and keep it real
For you no way, for you no way
So if you don’t rate, just overcompensate
At least you’ll know you can always go on ricki lake
The world needs wannabe’s
The world loves wannabe’s
Let’s get some more wannabe’s
Hey, hey do that brand new thing

    The Offspring are a damned good band. They have a distinctive, cool sound. I really like Gone Away. Pretty Fly for a White Guy is just plain silly (obviously), but I still find myself jamming to it when it comes on the air.
